Pirates reveal settle the rumours the former Chiefs coach: “Will he join the Buccaneers?”


Orlando Pirates have been busy with their quest of finding Josef Zinnbauer’s replacement at the helm. After he left Mayfair due to personal issues and that’s why Pirates doesn’t have a head coach. At the moment the Buccaneers are led by interim co-coaches Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids. By the looks of things, the Soweto giants have put their trust in their current technical team. It hasn’t been an easy journey for Ncikazi and Davids as they’re constantly facing criticism from the fans in terms of how they run things within the club.

Hence, some fans still believe that Pirates needs someone highly qualified to take over Zinnbauer’s duties. When the suspended Chippa United head coach Gavin Hunt’s name popped up, there was hope that he will move to Mayfair. However, these were seen as speculations since Hunt hasn’t confirmed anything about a possible move to the Soweto giants. Hunt hasn’t had a great run in the 2021/22 season, hence, Chippa suspended him due to a string of poor results. According to the recent reports, the whole speculations of the four-time league winning coach moving to Pirates has been squashed. “No, there is no way that Hunt is coming here [to Pirates], well, at least for now, because we don’t know what might happen in the coming years,” said the source speaking to the Citizen.

Hunt was sacked by Kaizer Chiefs last season for poor results, and the speculations about moving to their neighbours were going to be interesting. However, at the moment it is believed that Ncikazi and Davids will finish the campaign as interim coaches at Mayfair. “I think the person who started this rumour is someone who just wants to see Gavin coaching Pirates, nothing more. If there is one thing I can tell you, coach Mandla and coach Davids will finish the season as management is behind them,” said the source speaking to the Citizen.
